At the beginning of the year I decided to set myself a challenge to visit twelve different cities within twelve months and document it here on Madolyn Thinks. As we are now half way through 2017 I thought I would use this opportunity to reflect on the previous six months of travel and share what travel plans I have for the rest of the year. 

A Six-Month Overview

In January I took a trip to a city close to home, Leeds. Leeds is a very up and coming city with a lot to offer, it has a great music scene and so many amazing eateries. In February I headed over to explore the city of Sheffield with James and my brother. We had a great time discovering some amazing vintage shops and drinking some of the best coffee. London was the next city I visited in March, which involved attending BlogConLND as well as being a tourist in Camden. 

In April James and I flew over to Prague with some friends and we spend just short of a week in this beautiful and historic city. We had such an amazing time discovering what Prague had to offer and I enjoyed every minute. We took a family trip to Centre Parcs in May and had a great time just switching off from technology and appreciating being in and around a beautiful, nature filled area. In June my mum and I went to Edinburgh for a girly shopping weekend away. We had a lovely time exploring the city, eating great food and being tourists in the historical city. 

Future Travel Plans

When it comes to the rest of the year, I have a few more travel plans to see me through to 2018 in which James and I are planning a huge road trip around he USA. I haven’t been able to travel this month but in August James and I are thinking that we will go camping somewhere. I really fancy either driving over to Wales or heading over to the Lake District, pitching a tent and going for a few walks, pub lunches and BBQs. In September I am staying in London for Fashion Week and I want to explore more of our capital in amongst attending shows and events. 

In October, we are having another family holiday with my parents and we are going to Cyprus for a week in the sun. We thought it would be a nice time to go, as it will be out of season so a little less busy, and to also have one last hit of sunshine before winter comes and the countdown to Christmas begins. In November we have an overnight stay in Manchester planned and come December I want to go to a different city to get some Christmas shopping done and I have heard that Newcastle is a great place for that. 

Have you got any travel plans for the rest of the year?
